Meet Paul & Anja

In the past decades Dutchmen Paul and Anja have visited more than 55 destinations on their bikes.

The Western Balkan

Four weeks, six countries and eight bordercrossings: welcome to the western Balkan: Albania, Northern Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Bosnia Herzegovina and Croatia.


In 2018 we cycled around the island of Taiwan. A 1300 kilometer trip visiting both the east and the west coast and the very steep mountain roads as well.


We started and ended our trip in Muscat. First following the coast to Sur, then travelling south and then west again to the Wahiba Sands area and Nizwa. We climbed the road up OmanĀ“s highest mountain, Jebel Shams, and then crossed to Wadi Bani Awf. Via Rustaq and Nakhl we finally reached Muscat again where our trip finished.

Cycling in Scotland

What about a Scotland trip in May? Almost no midges, only a few drops of rain and stunning rides in the mountains, along Lochs and canals and on the Outer Hebrides!
